The new video player is truncating many of the movies. If the length is in minutes and zero seconds (52:00,57:00 for example) it has probably dropped the last part of a minute for the end.

tracey,
you refered to an audio file. I was talking about video files, especially movies.

fine 8-) but can you please copy a /details/ link
here because I can't find the items you are referring to
(in order to try to reproduce and fix any issue 8-)

I don't know how to copy a /details/link but I can give you titles to several old western movies that are truncated. You probably won't find these by searching 'movies'. You can find these by a 'moving images' search or an 'all media types' search.
1)The Lawless Frontier
2)Range Feud
3)Riders of the Whistling Skull
4)Two Fisted Law
There's several more that I could list, if you need them.
Thanks

ok, sorry for the delay...

alrighty -- i think there are 2 separate issues going on here:

(1)
cosmetic -- in the playlist *below* the player, indeed some of our videos were showing just the minutes and not the seconds.

I think this is one of the shows you mentioned above:
http://www.archive.org/details/RidersOfTheWhistlingSkull

That used to show 52:00 in the playlist, now it is the correct 52:23. There indeed was a (cosmetic) bug for many items in the code for dropping the seoncds -- fixed globally now and live.


(2)
i think this .divx source and some other similar items is cutoff a bit early -- at least when I play the .divx it ends abruptly a split-second after "The End" appears. so, so does the .mp4 in the video player that you play/see. not much we can do there if the uploader cuts a bit early (eg: before the full credits roll, etc.)


another item
http://www.archive.org/details/TheLawlessFrontier1934

stops after the "The End" and the fade to black (now?) so that seems fine.
(that one would have shown 49:00 and now it's the proper 49:48).

maybe you are using the flash-oriented side of our new player and this fix now fixes the issue, entirely?

let's hope!
thanks for sticking with me/us and making The Archive a better place!
